Columbia Fall Classic - Boys

The Columbia Fall Classic is an established end-of season event for any premier and classic teams looking to round off their season.   The weekend is open to U09—U19 teams.


Dear Participants and Families – 

The Soccer Association of Columbia and Elite Tournaments are proud to announce a new initiative that will take place during the Columbia Fall Classic Weekends. Throughout both weekends, we will be hosting a Food Drive benefitting the Maryland Food Bank. We will be collecting non-perishable food items such as pasta, canned foods, and cereal. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we want to help families in need keep food on their tables.

All items can be dropped off at the headquarters location of each tournament site. If you have any questions or would like to donate and cannot attend the event, please contact Cara Martin at

Check out a list of their most needed items:

New for this event: This event will carry full tournament insurance!

Field Information/Directions



To ensure the quality of service provided during our tournaments, the Tournament Committee has appointed THS as the official Hospitality Service for all of our events. All teams are mandated to book any hotel reservations through THS to insure their place in our tournaments. Any teams that do not comply will be at risk of forfeiting their acceptance.

By using THS as our booking service the Columbia Classic Tournament can offer our "Act of God" Clause.  This states "Should this entire event be cancelled for reasons beyond the Event Organizer's control (including weather), all outstanding reservations will be released at no charge to the participants"

Player Information

Player Profile Books:
Please make sure that you update your player profile information in the GotSoccer system so it is accessible by college coaches. You may need to contact your team manager or coach to add this information. This is the information that will be given to college coaches looking to recruit players.

Player Self-Recruiting: Elite Tournaments highly recommends that players reach out to the schools that they are interested in playing for. Many coaches come to our events to scout for pick up players, but will not realize that you interested in playing for their team unless you reach out to them! We also know that you have many schools that you are looking to play for that are not currently signed up to attend our event. You are encouraged to reach out to schools you are looking to attend, and let them know which events you will be playing in this season. We welcome you to invite these coaches to attend this event. If you have a coach that you are inviting to attend, please have them pre-register at the link above.



If you wish to referee the tournament, please contact our referee assignor. We welcome all out of town referees.
